There are some jobs in which it is impossible for a man to be virtuous.

Aristotle

Moral qualities are so constituted as to be destroyed by excess and by deficiency . . .

Aristotle
The wise man does not expose himself needlessly to danger, since there are few things for which he cares sufficiently; but he is willing, in great crises, to give even his life - knowing that under certain conditions it is not worthwhile to live.
Aristotle

Health is a matter of choice, not a mystery of chance

Aristotle
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. Aristotl
Aristotle

Modesty is hardly to be described as a virtue. It is a feeling rather than a disposition. It is a kind of fear of falling into disrepute.

Aristotle
He who can be, and therefore is, another's, and he who participates in reason enough to apprehend, but not to have, is a slave by nature.
Aristotle

Time is the measurable unit of movement concerning a before and an after.

Aristotle
So we must lay it down that the association which is a state exists not for the purpose of living together but for the sake of noble actions. Those who contribute most to this kind of association are for that very reason entitled to a larger share in the state than those who, though they may be equal or even superior in free birth and in family, are inferior in the virtue that belongs to a citizen. Similarly they are entitled to a larger share than those who are superior in riches but inferior in virtue.
Aristotle

If everything when it occupies an equal space is at rest, and if that which is in locomotion is always occupying such a space at any moment, the flying arrow is therefore motionless.

Aristotle
. . . the man is free, we say, who exists for his own sake and not for another's.
